Conversation Intercom
Time and time again
translation seems to sabotage
the words
you know what is said
is not what is heard
Damn this mean device
It makes a whispering man sound as if he cries
It's the pinnacle of what is typical
CONVERSATION INTERCOM
you hear what i say but
it comes out all wrong
CONVERSATION INTERCOM
you say what i see still
you speak in different tongues
Don't act like a fool
It makes you so uncool and
that's what it does best
'cause if anything
it's just a temper-test
Fill in your own words
yeah
1-800 Dial-to-be-heard
It's the pinnacle
of what is cynical
CONVERSATION INTERCOM
you hear what i say
but it comes out all wrong
CONVERSATION INTERCOM
you say what i see still
you speak in different tongues
........
clap your hands and you know what to do...
my ears attends to you...
as people listen intently...
can you copy?....
do you receive?...
do you receive?...
Damn this mean device
It makes a whispering man sound as if he criesback to top
Saturday
saturday, oh saturday
how cruel of you to go away
you turn us on and you don't even have the decency to stay
we think that we're so cool
and make the others drool
walking like a chameleon
turn around and turn me on and make that sound you do so well 'cause
i'm not dancing i'm just shifting weight
i thought that you could tell
we think that we're so cool
and make the others drool
walking like a chameleon
SOMETIMES love KILLS TIME
IT JUST MIGHT TONIGHT
neon claws and drama queens agree to like the local band
everyone is smoking filter cigarettes all over again
we think that we're so cool
and make the others drool
talking like a chameleon
SOMETIMES love KILLS TIME
IT JUST MIGHT TONIGHT
SOMETIMES love KILLS TIME
IT JUST MIGHT TONIGHT
SOMETIMES love KILLS TIME
IT JUST MIGHT TONIGHT
SOMETIMES love KILLS TIME
IT JUST MIGHT TONIGHT

When Logics Die
And the place of sadness
I occupy with dignity
was left like a dream among stones
and the words that you spill
from the mouth that you fill
they abandon their grace and fatigue
oh, to feel without touching
and speak without talking
excludet
from the feeling you earn
how I wish we could mend this
or learn how to throw away
as we look for someone to blame
love's been denied
don't be polite
I owe you nothing
when logics die
And the dream is a night
But eternal the kiss
But I guess you already knew
I'm the orgy and the distant cool
the friend you will never fool
I like the way you oppose me
let the last thoughts languish
and try and distinguish
you'll spill the tissues of lies
how I wish we could mend this
or learn how to throw away
as we look for someone to blame
love's been denied
don't be polite
I owe you nothing
when logics dieback to top
Much Against Everyone's Advice
I seem to have a history
at missing the point
at this stuff
apparently
very absentmindedly
I care
but never enough
for

you

Tiiiiiiiime-to set the record straight
Tiiiiiiiime-to stop communicating
please anticipate

And I'm trying to comprehend the things I write
and I'm living the lie that I cannot satisfy
Much against everyone's advice
I'm still trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying

Faith
cheated me of everything
but I laughed until
I stopped
publicity
very, very openly
I sat alone with my thoughts
for
...
you

Tiiiiiiiime-to set the record straight
Tiiiiiiiime-to stop communicating
please anticipate

And I'm trying to comprehend the things I write
and I'm living the lie that I cannot satisfy

Overweight Karate Kid
Like an overweight karate
kid you could moonwalk over my heart
using candour as painkiller
tastes like vanilla to me
occasionally

someone please make me go home, I'm
the worst at being alone
just tell me I ought to watch
INFOMERCIALS FOR LOVE
and buy all of their trust

saturdays have shown us I'm not
the world's most talkative guy
you say it's fine
but I can always try and answer
with amplified anger, and
then cry inside

someone please make me go home, I'm
the worst at being alone
just tell me I ought to watch
INFOMERCIALS FOR LOVE
and buy all of their trustback to top
Proverbial Pants
Don't let this heart pollute you
cross your legs and hope to die, 'cause
saturday night was god's way
of telling me I ought to
know- proverbial pants
please not again
oh proverbial pants
please not again

All I can do is warn you
in some stupid-half way
please tell me that you love me
but not too loud
oh-proverbial pants
please not again

DON'T COME TOO CLOSE CAUSE YOU'LL RUIN IT
YOU'LL HOLD IT AGAINST ME
INEVITABLY
CONSEQUENTLY

tell me what am I wearing
when you think of me?
this ought to be embarassing
you- not me

oh-proverbial pants
please not again

DON'T COME TOO CLOSE CAUSE YOU'LL RUIN IT
YOU'LL HOLD IT AGAINST ME

The Salty Knowledge of Tears
Somebody,
take this love and run away
'cause I don't care
it is all i can say

I KEEP ON LOSING YOU
AND FINDING YOU

Take me upstairs and
into your arms
Do not be deceived by my charms

I KEEP ON LOSING YOU
AND FINDING YOU

That's why I fear
all the salty knowledge of tears

Just shut your mouth and kiss me
just close your eyes
punish yourself with a handkerchief
I don't reply

That's why I fear
all the salty knowledge of tearsback to top
Flying Without Wings
If love ever comes barging in like that again,
that's it, I'm calling security.
If time ever tries to pull one of those stunts again,
you'd better believe, it ain't me, it ain't me.

'cause everything you try to conceal
is everything you want to reveal

flying without wings
i wish i just couldn't feel a thing
it goes to show: you never knowback to top
More Than This
guess I had it coming
ambition is my worst vice

next thing I know
time is having it's way with me

working hard at putting skin on baloney
it all makes sense in some way i forget right now

somehow i manage to fool
myself and everyone else

that this is really just
only, maybe, only,

just the meantime
meantime

frequent liar mileage
as if I had a choice

limp to the edge of patience
and let yourself fall

wearing out mirrors
all over the world

i hope i can get far playing
air guitar

in the meantime
meantime

there has to be more than this
there has to be more than this

somehow i manage to fool
myself and everyone else

that this is really just
only, maybe, only,

just the meantime

Too Many DJ's
everybody wants to be the dj
everybody thinks it's oh so easy
you think you belong and you come on strong
but i can still tell the right from the wrong

i could never be that kind of girl
nobody takes the time to turn
you always act as if it's understood
but sweet revenge is finger-lickin' good

if only i could sell myself
the way that even i would buy
if only i could sell myself
the way that even i would buy
somethings got to give
somethings got to give
'cause i don't know
somethings got to give
somethings got to give
'cause i don't know

there's one thing how to understand me
loneliness tastes like cotton candy
you answer "i love you" with "i know"
never check the message on your answerphone

if only i could sell myself
the way that even i would buy
if only i could sell myself
the way that even i would buy
somethings got to give
somethings got to give
but i don't know

Temptingly Yours
Can I wash your hair underneath that wig takes a minute try and get to
the other side can I peal the
skin of your face takes a minute try and get to the other side we better
skip the old routine can I pick
you up on your way down takes a minute try and get to the other side can
I come on in and feel at
home takes a minute try and get to the other side until the time finally
comes there'll be no breath,
but you will smell it there'll be no death, but you will die it by the
time you read this line - I'll be
gone we're gonna have a splendid time as I sing the songs we'll never
write we gonna have a splendid
time it didn't have to be like this there'll be no breath, but you will
smell it, there'll be no death,
but you will die it there'll be no breath, but you will smell it
there'll be no death, but you will die it
Acapulco gold
Common cancer - on the telephone
Dead stop radio - try an suck a hole
Gif wise tongue - dead gone monotone
It's all around your big white ears
A life in the day - dream on dreamin' on
Milk my mind - keep on keepin' on
Make me cream - have a taste son
10 000 Miles under the soul
Leave the story untold
But the map's already unfold
Everybody's soul searchin' for
Acapulco gold
Hands up raised high
Keep your mind blowin'
Won't you pay no mind
Got your face glowin'
Keep your fi-hi
With my mind blowin'
It's been travellin' to wherever it should
Leave the story untold
But the map's already unfold
Everybody's soul searching for
Acapulco gold
Great continental suicide note
Try me, write it down
On whatever is left to stay
But it means nothin' to me
Try and put it down to
Someone else's mistake
But it's over, it's over
Get high, any higher
And if I get this lonely
I write it down to this moment
Last word for solitude
Long time overdue
But it means nothin' to me
Cause you sit back
while every surf
Hits the rocks
Better than sure
Don't give it away
Get high, any higher
And if I get this lonely
I write it down to this moment
Cause : you want it you want it you got it you got it if you taste it if
you need it if you waste it go chase it
hammer and tongues
Like the hammer of a clickin' gun
words soundin'
funny coming out
all wrong hang on

Long distance view
Feels like nothin' is real When all you
can hear is sorry again Please don't
take my fraud As i finish my thoughts
for you It's my new favorite word it's a
three letter hurt from inside As I try
to forhet It's as far as i'll get to
hatin' you Complicated - cannot find the
words Let your mind fall down
Sophisticated - love the way, it hurts
Let your mind fall down ! It's a long
distance zoom As I pan through, the room
for you As I try to forget it's as far
as I'll get to hatin' you Tell me -
write it down - long distance zoom !
Complicated - cannot find the words Let
your mind fall down Sophisticated - love
the way it hurts Let your mind fall down
Rooster
Johnny got shot through the grease
Drove his wheels through guarantee
Walked about with a monkey on his back
Torn pages of a coward's almanac
He got stuck between y - z
First letters of his own alphabet
Everythin' is cut & dry. The rooster crowes 3 times
As he turns & goes. The rooster crowes 3 times
A wise man told him about a song
First he had to blow the dust from his tongue
And Johnny said
Cannot see the mess I'm in
Can't seem to plug my organ in.
Everythin' is cut and dry - till the rooster crowes 3 times
As he turns & he goes - the rooster crowes 3 times
Wished I had a bad, bad memory
For all my so-called friends to see
So keep on readin' between the lines
A frogue's tongue freakin' at a jar of flies
If we never meet again it's to soon - so let's not pretendback to top
Scream
Like she was scream
I try to hear
what's in my dreams
I gotta fear
I cannot breathe
please hold me tight
I try to feel
don't talk so fast

this radioactive she
what she does to me
caught her inside, cuts like a knife
she's like a scream to me

I'm not afraid
I cannot help
there's no disguise, no alibies
what do I think
I cannot say
something about me
like she was here

this radioactive she
what she does to me
caught her inside, cuts like a knife
she's like a scream to meback to top
Funny
wasn't it supposed to be funny?
wasn't it supposed to be funny?

wasn't it supposed to be funny?
wasn't it supposed to be funny?

sample playing:
save our souls

wasn't it supposed to be funny?
wasn't it supposed to be funny?

sample playing:
save our souls

wasn't it supposed to be-
